Teacher Review For Kodable

A great app that helps younger students think in a linear way while playing a game.

How I Use It
I am a teacher on special assignment this year so I was not able to use this in my classroom. My kids love the app and I have heard from other elementary teachers that their students liked using the app during the week of code.
My Take
This is a great first step in teaching students to write code. Kids seem to have a fun time while using the app and they want to continue to solve new levels. The set up time is a little long - you need to install the app on each iPad. There is a free version, but students get through those levels fairly quickly. I suggest using this app at the lower levels - K-2.
